How to Get Rid of Spots and Marks How to Get Rid of Spots and Marks

Overview

Spots and marks can severely impair your self-esteem. Red, brown or black marks on your skin can make you want to cover up or avoid going out altogether. Whether your marks are the result of an injury, scars or sun damage, you can get rid of them, thankfully. Any treatment method you choose starts with a good skin care plan that prevents the development of new marks.

Step 1

Use an SPF 15 sunblock on your skin before going outside each day. Apply a good amount to all exposed areas to protect your skin while treating it for spots and to prevent the development of new spots from sun damage.

Step 2

Partake in proper skin care. Cleanse your skin each morning and evening and apply an oil-free moisturizer to keep your skin in good condition. This will prevent new blemishes and make your skin more receptive to treatments.

Step 3

Apply lemon juice to your spots and marks to encourage them to fade away. After soaking a cotton pad in lemon juice, rub it on your skin. Rinse it off after 10 minutes. The citric acid should fade your marks if applied consistently.

Step 4

Visit your dermatologist's office and undergo microdermabrasion. Treatment involves running a wand over your skin to sand off the top layer of skin. This stimulates new tissue production and will make your spots and marks fade faster than if left to heal on their own.

Step 5

Visit your dermatologist and undergo a chemical peel. During treatment an acid will be placed on the areas of skin to be treated. It may sting a bit. Then the acid is removed. Treatment will need to be repeated about six times before you attain desirable lightening of your spots and marks.
